The CEO has an incentive to find cheaper ways to deliver a service because they pocket some of the savings. A government employee gains nothing if they find a cheaper way of delivering a service — their compensation is fixed.
Just how efficient is the Pentagon, with the toilet seats they were paying $700 to procure? That’s a single-payer systemn too.
I didn’t “spit on government.” Try to be a little less exciteable. Similarly I made no argument that “private influence should be the only influence.” I just think it’s laughable to claim that government will deliver health care more efficiently than its delivered now.
There are plenty of credible arguments for government-run health care, but efficiency isn’t among them.
